I will say I am not necessarily a fan of Wendy Davis' politics. Although recently she did do right and showed she had more business-sense than Attorney General Abbott by backing the American Airlines-US Airways merger. Apparently the AG believes airlines should fly unprofitable routes (Who's the socialist now?).
Does she have an uphill mountain to climb? Hell yeah she does.
But she has shown that she has the balls to make that climb...unlike those two pansies in San Antonio.
That's why she could win. The election will be more about her than her politics.
In some ways she kinda represents what conservatism is about. She was a teen when she got pregnant, but she kept it (irony not lost on me). She worked her ass to get through college while raising a family (she didn't take 40 years unlike someone we know). If that were not enough, still she worked, raised a family and commuted to Harvard Law. Talk about doing something with your life and pulling yourself by the bootstraps. Unlike someone else in the race, she did not sue her way to success (yes, I said that). She would honestly make for a great Republican if she moderated some of her politics.
Despite that story, from now until the election the polls will show that she sucks.
So why does she have a chance?
Even the most conservative-minded woman will think twice when she votes.
Again, most voting Texas women will not like her politics, but they will like what she has done for herself. It is at that very moment when it is time to make that selection on the ballot that women that would have normally voted for a Republican will vote for a Democrat.
